CosIng is EU's official database for cosmetic ingredients. It has not only included cosmetic ingredients listed in previous inventory of cosmetic ingredients, but also included the latest list of banned/restricted cosmetic ingredients in EU. You can quickly find one ingredient's INCI name or CAS no. You could also quickly check whether there are any restrictions for your cosmetic ingredients. In this article, we will show you how to search the EU CosIng with a few tips.
EU CosIng is free of charge. You may access the database by clicking the picture below.
By default, you search "all" lists in scope (see picture below). However, you may also choose to search a specific list (i.e, the positive list of preservatives or colorants).
Please note that the search is not exact search. If you search "ethanol", all ingredients with the name "ethanol" will appear (see picture below).
You can view more info about a specific substance or ingredient by clicking the blue link.
